Timeline PhotosThe benefits of Mediterranean tourism need to be enhanced for local communities. This implies an improvement of the whole tourism value chain through reduction of waste and measures for efficient use of resources. The reduction of losses automatically increases the productivity and the economic margin of the operators while decreasing pressures on natural and urban ecosystems and giving tourists and local communities a better experience.💯🆗

Here the tips by EU Climate Action on how to #savewater:

- Reducing your hot water use saves energy – and money!
- Install aerated taps and showerheads to cut down your water consumption.
- Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth. A running tap wastes up to 8 litres of water a minute!
- If a tap drips, fix it. Otherwise, you could waste up to 1 litre of water per hour, which is the equivalent of an entire bathtub in a week.
- Check your toilet for leaks. A leaking toilet can waste 200 litres of water per day − the same as flushing it 50 times.
- Water your plants in the late evening or early morning, when less water is lost through evaporation.
- Use a thermos flask. When you boil water for a hot drink, boil only what you need, or pour the surplus into a thermos flask to keep the water hot for your next cup.
